Pillow cases

I can’t write you a

short poem

or enough words to fill a

138 page novel

but I can write you something

half of that

but

much less.

I didn’t see you

enough today

in my mind,

or in person,

or in my bed.

a glancing smile

won’t do anymore;

I need your

snoring, drooling,

unmasked

face on my pillow

every morning,

especially if I’m

ever to

write something

meaningful about you.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
